Ridin' boots...

Can anyone recommend a good pair of motorcycle boots? Some of the ones I've tried on out there that look great, don't feel so good. Thanks.

I wear the HD Brake Light series, with a 5 oz. miracle insert in the bottom. Once they broke in, they're DURN comfy, and they've survived many miles of walking and SnOMG 2011 here in Oklahoma.

Red Wing has a few options and both my wife and I have used their boots for years. Very durable and comfortable.

When the weather's warm I wear a pair of leather engineer boots that I got at a ranch store on clearance like 5 years ago. I don't even know the brand name. When the weather's cold I have a pair of Herman Survivors from Walmart with composite safety toe and 600 grams of Thinsulate. These are actually bulkier than I like, but at least my toes are warm.

I randomly purchased a pair of Milwaukee Motorcycle Clothing Company boots off the internet. I have the 'Road Captain' model. I like the ez on/off zipper. I have to say they are the most comfortable boots I ever put on my feet - even right out of the box. And after a few weeks they just got better. I've had them six months and put a couple thousand miles on them. They show very little wear. I don't know how long these will last but I plan to buy a different model from the same maker because I am very happy with them.

So many options! I was looking at Cruiserworks. Expensive, but they seem to have a good rep.

Don't scrimp on footwear! I've got a couple pairs of cheap(ish) boots that look great & just sit in my closet. I've got a pair of Carolina logger boots that look bitchin', but man, are they HEAVY!

My main boots are Danner Strikers. $180 & worth every penny. When I need new ones I'll either get more Danners or look at Red Wings.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.

I've got two pair I've been wearing and replacing the soles on. My favorite Frye engineer boots are great because they slide on and off so easily. I wear my Smith's construction work boots when conditions might get a bit messy outside. There are more options than you can count but I'm always comfortable in a pair of slip-resistant workboots. Just don't get anything too clunky with any kind of really thick sole.

I wear military boots (black ones) once you get them broke in they are more comfortable than tennis shoes and a lot more protection.

I also wear a pair of Red Wings motorcycle boots. They are very comfortable and worth the price.
